Polling stations in schools

Nasik Swami

THE Education Ministry has called on all school heads and managements to closely co-ordinate with the Elections Office in preparation for the upcoming general election.

Permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal said with schools always being used as polling venues, this year would be no different.

"I am therefore urging all head teachers, principals and school managements to collaborate with the Elections Office in establishing polling stations in their schools," Dr Lal said.

"This is a major event for the nation and the Ministry of Education is pleased to assist in every way possible.

"School managements and heads are requested to facilitate available resources in their schools to assist the elections team in their preparation."

He said his office received a request from the Elections Office to endorse the use of schools in the upcoming general election and approval had been granted to ensure that the ministry provided a convenient environment for voting.

"We need to co-operate and support one another to ensure that we have a successful election for a better Fiji," Dr Lal said.

The general election will be held on September 17 — a day gazetted as a paid public holiday.
